The Walrus National Gallery Debate
'Art in Daily Life: Essential or Irrelevant? Who Decides? Who Pays? Who Cares?' The National Gallery's Director and CEO Marc Mayer and art critic Sarah Milroy will face-off against the Winnipeg Art
or Stephen Borys and friend. From street art to national galleries, and everywhere in between, our debaters will challenge one another to prove, or disprove, the relevance of art in daily life. This thoughtful and entertaining debate will also include moderator Carol Off, CBC radio host for As it Happens, and provocateur Peter Simpson, arts editor-at-large for the Ottawa Citizen; as well as additional rabble-rousers.
Time: Debate at 7:00 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased at the National Gallery Box Office in person or by phone at 613- 998-8888 or 1-888-541-8888
Cost: Adults $15, Seniors and Students $12, NGC members $10.
